Changing Demographics Impact the Market

Posted by Matthew T. Smoot on December 13, 2014 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Changing Demographics Impact the Market

Realtors from across the country discussed changing home buyer demographics that impact the housing market during the recently concluded 2014 Realtors Conference & Expo.

Among primary residence home buyers, the demographics have shifted dramatically, especially among first-time home buyers, whose share of the market has dropped to its lowest level in decades, said Jessica Lautz, director of member and consumer survey research for the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

Adult Millennials, those aged 18 to 33, were a popular topic of panel discussion. In 2014, Millennials saw 60 percent better job growth than the U.S. overall, and a drop in unemployment to 6 percent. This growth, along with improved economic opportunities, should encourage Millennials to form households and buy homes in the coming years.

Millennials are the largest generation of people in the U.S. and represent 60 percent of first-time home buyers, said Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for realtor.com. They are also more likely than any other group to purchase a home in the next year.


Tightened inventory, difficulty receiving credit, and lower than average salaries have kept many of Millennial buyers out of the market, but most economists see that as a temporary setback.

"It's not that young people don't want to purchase homes, it's that they are delaying the purchase," said Lisa A. Sturtevant, vice president of research for the National Housing Conference. Many of the reasons Millennials are not forming households or making purchases are economic; so as the economy improves, we should see this group become more of a force in the housing market.

Smoke said it's a misperception that Millennials are not already participating in the market.  Millennials "represented 37 percent of home shoppers this summer, and over the next 5 years, this generation will make up two-thirds of household formations," Smoke said. "Between June and September 2014, over half of adults aged 21-34 visited real estate websites or mobile apps. And this is the cusp - get ready for the millennial wave to drive the housing market for decades."


Another group that will be competing with Millennials for dominance in the housing market is baby boomers. Sturtevant added: "With Millennials searching for new homes, baby boomers downsizing, and groups with historically lower incomes all entering the market, an increased demand for smaller, less expensive homes will begin to emerge."

15% Increase in Foreclosures: MD is one of the Highest

Posted by Matthew T. Smoot on November 17, 2014 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)

15% Increase in Foreclosures: MD is one of the Highest

RealtyTrac, the nation's leading source for comprehensive housing data, today released its U.S. Foreclosure Market Report for November 2014, which shows foreclosure filings - default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions - were reported on 123,109 U.S. properties in October, an increase of 15 percent from the previous month but still down 8 percent from a year ago.

The 15 percent monthly increase was the largest month-over-month increase since U.S. foreclosure activity peaked in March 2010. The report also shows one in every 1,069 U.S. housing units with a foreclosure filing during the month.

 

A total of 59,869 U.S. properties were scheduled for foreclosure auction during the month, up 24 percent from the previous month and up 7 percent from a year ago to the highest level since May 2013. Scheduled foreclosure auctions in judicial foreclosure states, where foreclosures are processed through the court system, increased 21 percent from the previous month and were up 3 percent from a year ago and. Scheduled foreclosure auctions in non-judicial states increased 27 percent from the previous month and were up 14 percent from a year ago.

 

"The October foreclosure numbers are not a complete surprise given that over the past three years there has been an average 8 percent monthly uptick in scheduled foreclosure auctions in October as banks try to get ahead of the usual holiday foreclosure moratoriums," said Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac. "But the sheer magnitude of the increase this year demonstrates there is more than just a seasonal pattern at work. Distressed properties that have been in a holding pattern for years are finally being cleared for landing at the foreclosure auction.

 

"There is still strong demand from the large institutional investors at the foreclosure auction in some markets, but even in markets with decreasing demand at the foreclosure auction, banks can be confident in selling REO properties quickly and at a good price," Blomquist continued. "That's because there is still strong demand from buyers, particularly in the lower price ranges, combined with a dearth of distressed homes listed for sale."   

 

Scheduled foreclosure auctions increased from a year ago in 29 states, including Oregon (up 399 percent), North Carolina (up 288 percent), New Jersey (up 118 percent), New York (up 89 percent), Connecticut (up 60 percent), Nevada (up 53 percent), Alabama (up 41 percent), Washington (up 36 percent), Indiana (up 36 percent), California (up 19 percent) and South Carolina (up 18 percent).

 

Other high-level findings from the report:

  • Lenders repossessed 27,914 U.S. properties via foreclosure (REO) in October, up 22 percent from the previous month but down 26 percent from a year ago. October posted the largest monthly increase in REOs since June 2009.
     
  • REOs increased from a year ago in 16 states, including Maryland (up 190 percent), Pennsylvania (up 25 percent), New Jersey (up 22 percent), Oregon (up 20 percent) and New York (up 18 percent).
  • Overall foreclosure activity increased from a year ago in 10 of the nation's 20 largest metropolitan statistical areas in terms of population, including Washington, D.C. (26 percent increase), Philadelphia (13 percent increase), Baltimore (13 percent increase), Riverside-San Bernardino in Southern California (8 percent increase), and New York (7 percent increase).
     
  • Among the nation's 20 largest metros, those with the five highest foreclosure rates were Miami (one in every 363 housing units with a foreclosure filing); Tampa (one in every 395 housing units); Baltimore (one in every 435 housing units); Riverside-San Bernardino in Southern California (one in every 495 housing units); and Chicago (one in every 553 housing units).
  • A total of 56,452 U.S. properties started the foreclosure process in October, up 12 percent from previous month but down 4 percent from a year ago. This was the largest monthly increase in U.S. foreclosure starts since August 2011.

Tips on Preparing Your Home for Winter 2014

Posted by Greg Bennett on October 30, 2014 at 10:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Winter time is fast approaching in the Lowcountry, and especially here in Beaufort SC.  Though it does not get too cold (it may be just as cold as last year), it is always good to weatherproof your home this holiday season.  Here are some tips to help save money and keep the cold out of your home. 


  1. Keep the heat in by inspecting the weatherstripping around your windows and doorframes. Check for drafts as well.  Replacing weatherstrips or caulking inside and out may be necessary. 
  2. Turn your ceiling fans on clockwise.  This draws the warmer air down instead of up.  This is especially helpful for higher ceilings.
  3. Take a look around the exterior of your home.  Trim back any branches that may damage your home or surrounding powerlines. 
  4. Insulate any exposed pipes to prevent pipes from bursting.  Exterior pipes are the most susceptible to freezing, and often times they have little or no insulation from the cold.  This is an easy preventative measure that can save tons of money.
  5. If you have a fireplace, make sure the chimney and flue are in working order.  Get it inspected.  Make sure you have enough firewood on hand just in case the power goes out.
  6. Insulate your attic and walls! 
  7. Inspect your roof for any missing shingles or holes.
  8. Inspect the exterior of your home.  Little animals do not like the cold weather, too, and will take any opportunity to share the warmth of your home! 

These are only some tips to help get you started.  There are plenty of websites that can help you prepare for the changing season.  Many home improvement stores already have their winter readiness products available.  Do your research before it gets too cold outside!

Home Value Growth Has Peaked

Posted by Matthew T. Smoot on October 30, 2014 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Home Value Growth Has Peaked

Appreciation in home values is slowing definitively after nearly two years of accelerating year-over-year growth, according to the third quarter Zillow® Real Estate Market Reports.
Homebuyers who have been priced out of hot markets will welcome the cooling off, and the most recent data should further combat worry about another housing bubble.

 

The rate of annual home-value appreciation peaked at 8.1 percent in April and has fallen in every month since. U.S. home values were up 6.5 percent year-over-year at the end of the third quarter, to a Zillow Home Value Index of $176,500.

The rate of appreciation is expected to continue to slow. Home values are forecasted to grow at 3%, roughly half their current pace, through the end of the third quarter of 2015, according to the Zillow Home Value Forecast.

 

As the market cools, the dynamic between buyers and sellers is also changing. At the end of the third quarter, there were 18.6 percent more homes on the market than last year, and more homes listed recently had a price cut. In September, nearly 37 percent of listings on Zillow had at least one price cut in the past month, up from 33.6 percent in September 2013. The softening market means homebuyers will find less competition.

 

The pace of home value appreciation dropped off significantly in markets that had been among the hottest at times during the housing recovery, particularly in California and the Southwest. In Los Angeles, home-price appreciation slowed from 18.5 percent annually in the third quarter of 2013 to 8.3 percent over the past year. Annual appreciation in San Francisco slowed to 8.2 percent, compared to 23.5 percent over the same time period last year.

"What a difference a year makes.

 

At this time last year, we were worrying about a number of frothy markets that looked like they could be on the edge of another housing bubble, places where homes were appreciating at more than 20 percent per year and where buyers' heads were spinning just trying to keep up," said Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Stan Humphries. "We always knew these market conditions couldn't last, and it's good to see us now on a more natural and sustained glide path down toward more normal market conditions of roughly 3 percent annual appreciation and more balance between buyers and sellers.  

 

Home values should continue to grow, but that growth will increasingly be driven by traditional market fundamentals like household formation and job growth, and less by artificial stimulants like decreased supply and widespread investor demand."

 

Nationally, rents rose 3.5 percent year-over-year in the third quarter, to a Zillow Rent Index of $1,335, rising 1.8 percent compared to the second quarter.
